“Being involved in any extracurricular activity is both rewarding and a learning experience.”
I came from a small high school with a graduating class of 75 students. I had my choice narrowed down to DYC and a large university. I have family who work at the larger school who encouraged me to go there so I took a second tour of the school. The tour guide took me into a "medium" lecture hall which held at least 200 people, so I asked about attendance and professors and from what I learned I realized I couldn't go to a school where I would just be a number and if I needed help the professors really wouldn't be able to help me much.
I participated in a Kick Ball League (they really do exist! :D). The league is a fun and carefree activity so there are no practices or any travelling with it, but as a full time graduate student it causes you to have to budget your time and set priorities. Being involved in any extracurricular activity is both rewarding and a learning experience.
As a graduate HSA student I am learning a variety of aspects in the healthcare system. Once I graduate I hope to one day open my own pediatric clinical that focuses on Physical and Occupational Therapy. I love working with children and have been babysitting since I was fifteen. Over the past two years I have been a nanny to two wonderful children who I have been able to see grow up and develop.
